I made this for our weekly family dinner. I did not put the frosting on the top as my son-in-law said that his family (from Mexico) does not do that. This cake was a HIT! Everyone dovoured it. Thank you for posting it.

Wow! My other half is a fanatic for Mexican food, having grown up in California. He LOVED this cake. He's had it several times before at different restaraunts and said this recipe was just as good. I cheated on the topping and used cool whip. I didn't find crema, so I used a pint of whipping cream. I put mandarin oranges and kiwi on top. My only issue was the cake was a lot more wet in the center than on the sides. Anyone have any suggestions on how to even it out a bit?

I made this for my mexican themed night and everyone loved it. It is very rich and satisfying - you can't eat too much of it after 4 courses of mexican food lol. TY
